L had her 9 month checkup today. She weighed 16 lbs 4 oz and is 27" long. That puts her around 25% for weight and almost 50% for height. She gained 3 lbs 2 oz and 2" in 3 months, which is a pretty good gain for her! At 6 months, she had been hovering around the 10% percentile for both height & weight.
She had a finger prick for hemoglobin and her polio vaccine. She didn't cry at either, which surprised both the nurse and me. When I talked to my mom this afternoon, she said I never cried at shots either. My sister, on the other hand, would get hysterical.
Her length means we need to start looking for a new carseat -- one that can sit backwards (she'll be that way until she's over 20 lbs) but that is tall enough for her height.
